{Work Day Pleasures}

There is a lot to be thankful around here these days...glimmering new opportunities, visions becoming realities, creativity and the sparking of an imagination. But the simple things hold just as much importance -- a warm cup of coffee decorated with the spirit of the holidays, leaves crunching beneath fancy feet, the delicate balance of autumn teetering toward winter...


Have a fabulous day! xo, Jolie

How to Mix Fall Fashion and 1970s Style

"A LOST WEEKEND" -- Take glamour to the country with languid shapes, luxe fabrics and a hint of modern day decadence." 
I'm absolutely positively in love with this editoral from net-a-porter. It perfectly blends some of my latest obessions: 70s style lengthy gowns,  Annie Hall-esque aesthetic and wide brimmed hats--- with stand-by obsessions: high-waisted trousers and mix-matched textures and patterns. How to Mix Fall Fashion and 1970s Style1. Maxi Dresses with long sleeves (thick hose underneath will add a layer of warmth) 2. Pair wide-brimmed felt hats with cozy vets in heavy fabrics 3. Bell sleeves + boots? A classic! In velvet? Perfect! 4. Pair any luxe fabric gown with a chunky necklace and you have 70s glam!
That and I can't get enough of the moody fall countryside, the stately home and wayward hydrangeas. It's perfection!
Have a decadent day! xo, Jolie

{ Making Your Life Richer and Fuller} Dark Velvets and the Coming of Fall

Changing things up a bit...around the house, in the office, in everyday life... on costumes, on task lists. When fall arrives I find it a great opportunity to remove those things I find unnecessary and to embellish what is almost perfect.  In fall, I want my live to feel richer.

Why not make things more lush or luxurious? Fall is begging for us to indulge in dark velvets, days of work done by the fire instead of at a desk, added sparkly accessories, and hours of deep pensive thoughts. Add to yourself, to your home, to your work! Whether it be a vintage velvet gown, a silky cozy throw, a series of meaningful rehearsals, a well edited document --- reach further to not only pamper, but to improve yourself!

Do you find yourself wanting to feel as though your life is fuller these days?
